Nvidia SHIELD Android TV console is perhaps the best Android TV device on the market. Ever since its launch a year ago, this Tegra X1-based device gained over 10 upgrades with improvement in specifications and features. With the Google I/O 2016 conference taking place at the Googleplex in Mountain View, CA, Nvidia wanted to make sure their announcements reflect on the strength of Android ecosystem and its capabilities. The Software Upgrade 3.2 brings the support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) TV devices, which are coming to the market later this year. It also now supports YouTube 4K at 60 fps / Hz, which was not the case in the
It seems that NVIDIA Corporation is going from strength to strength as it presented final numbers for the fiscal fourth quarter, and fiscal financial year. Just like Apple, NVIDIA does not use Calendar Year (CY) for its earnings, unlike AMD, Intel, Qualcomm and the like. Their year ends with January 1st, and starts with February 1st. For the fourth fiscal quarter 2016, the company reported $1.40 billion, 12% more than the year before (YoY). Fiscal 2016 also marks the first time NVIDIA broke into the $5 billion club, with $5.01 billion in revenue. Revenue drive was not driven by buying the market share as the company reported healthy

Re-focusing Tegra’s strategy away from smartphones has appeared to pay-off for Nvidia, as the company’s profits climbed 33% compared to the same quarter last year on strong growth in its Tegra as well as datacenter and cloud divisions. For the second-quarter of its fiscal year Nvidia reported net income of $128 million on revenue of $1.1 billion, compared to a net profit of $96.4 million for the same quarter last year. Of particular interest in Nvidia’s quarterly report was the dramatic increase in revenue from its Tegra division. Once the sick man of the company’s various business units, the Tegra division reported a 200% increase
Nvidia has been doing a lot of their own consumer products lately, with the original Shield handheld gaming console and the Tegra Note 7 tablet. Each of these devices was actually surprisingly good and they were very good values for the money, especially if you got them at their cheapest ($199 each). Nvidia has learned a lot of lessons from each device and they’ve done a fantastic job of updating both the Shield and the Tegra Note 7. Their updates are so frequent and regular that I almost feel like they’ve got the leg up on almost every other Android manufacturer out there. They are
So, we already reported to you about the cake we got from Nvidia along with an Aperture Laboratories-themed letter, as well as the ultimate result of Portal arriving on the SHIELD with a short review of our experience and some screen shots. Well, Nvidia’s viral marketing doesn’t stop there with SHIELD as today we received a bright green crowbar from Nvidia that simply said, “What Would Gordon Do?” This is a clear allusion to Half Life 2, and as if that isn’t enough, they also have the Half-Life 2 and SHIELD logos emblazoned on the crowbar itself. As we had alluded to in the previous
Nvidia has been talking about the fact that Portal will be coming to SHIELD since they announced it at their GPU Technology Conference along with the $199 price cut of the SHIELD. Since then, the guys at Valve and Nvidia have been working feverishly to deliver a working port of Portal from the PC to SHIELD. Well, we got an early access to the APK a few days ago and we’ve been playing it ever since, and the verdict is that its virtually impossible to tell whether or not I’m playing on my PC or on my SHIELD. I’ve played Portal before on my PC
There has always been a ton of pop culture around the phrase “The Cake is a lie” and many gamers simply don’t understand the origin of the phrase or understand its meaning, but neither are necessary unless you get a randomly delivered cake from UPS in the middle of your week with a ‘letter’ from “Aperture Labs.” I’m not going to be one to say no to a delicious chocolate cake being delivered to my apartment for free, but it is a bit weird to be getting a cake either way and once you read the letter that accompanied the cake, you start to understand
